End of September 2023, Canada’s wildfires still raging (please don’t call it “season” which is propaganda normalizing it)

What will Canada’s wildfires look like when frac’ers inject the last billion gallons of water in dry jurisdictions?

What will they look like after hundreds of thousands of fracs permanently leak methane and other flammable hydrocarbons to surface (that are underground and impossible to repair)?

Neil Lareau @nplareau Sept 26, 2023:

It just won’t stop. Canada realized its most intense episode of fire growth to date (as shown by accumulated FRP), never-mind that it happened on a date after which every previous season (in the MODIS record) had slowed to a trickle…

… “It’s not just a record-breaking year, it’s an extreme record-breaking year,” said NSIDC senior scientist Walt Meier. …

2023: Frac Central Alberta: Fox Creek Wall of Wildfire. How many hundreds of thousands of fracs are leaking methane, ethane, propane, butane, pentane, sour gas to surface fuelling wildfires? Do leaking facilities, wells, pipelines start and fuel fires? Who’s checking? AER? Encana/Ovintiv? Chevron? No one.

A proportion (25% to 100%) of the water used in hydraulic fracturing is not recovered, and consequently this water is lost permanently to re-use, which differs from some other water uses in which water can be recovered and processed for re-use.
